Despite the setbacks of COVID-19 and the wet weather, their balance of competitiveness and their upbeat manner has constantly inspired many of the younger cricketers. They are young men who can be counted on.
Season Wrap Up
Lastly, thank you to all involved this season. Especially to coaches and parents within the Supporters’ Group. This year has consisted of many challenges, and at times disappointment, as we have had to again navigate COVID-19 and the heavy onslaught of rain. However, as games were cancelled and disruptions occurred, the spirit of the cricket community could not be faulted.
I am looking forward to seeing you all again next season!
Mr Sean Picone
Convenor of Cricket
